Healthy homemade burritos

6 vegan burritos

Mexican burritos are so amazingly yummy! We really love all Mexican food!! This vegan burritos recipe is incredibly tasty and I really recommend you to make it some time. With homemade whole wheat tortilla wraps which makes this dish even more delicious. And healthy too because I use whole grain flour for the wraps. Preparing these wraps is quite simple and takes not a lot of your time. But if you want to save some time in the kitchen, you can buy the tortillas in the supermarket.

Make your own burrito seasoning mix with delicious Mexican flavors like cumin, coriander, oregano, paprika powder and chili.

These healthy burritos are loaded with nutritious ingredients like kidney beans, corn, tomatoes, onion, bell pepper and garlic. Fill the wraps, roll them up, sprinkle with plant-based cheese and put them in the oven for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with fresh coriander and enjoy your meal!

Preperation vegan burritos recipe

  1. Tortilla wraps
    Add the flour, water and olive oil in a large bowl and stir. Flour your bench top and knead the dough until a firm smooth ball forms. If needed add a little flour if the dough feels too sticky or add a little water if the dough feels too dry. The dough must feel smooth and soft, compare it with your earlobe.
  2. Divide the dough into 6 balls and flatten each portion on a lightly floured surface. Use a rolling pin to flatten as much as possible, but don’t break it.
  3. Place a frying pan over medium heat, don’t put oil in it and bake the tortillas for one minute on each side or until lightly browned.
  4. Prepare vegan burritos
    Preheat your oven to 180 °C.
  5. Heat some oil in a frying pan. Fry the onions and the chili pepper for a few minutes, add the red and green bell pepper and fry again for 3 minutes. Add the garlic, tomatoes, lime juice, beans, corn and seasoning. Sizzle for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat.
  6. Put some cream on the tortillas if you have. Spread the filling across the center, wrap it up and place carefully in the baking dish.
  7. Sprinkle with cheese and bake for about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  8. Take the healthy burritos out of the oven and sprinkle with fresh coriander before serving.
